It's great to see a crowdfunding (crowdsource funding) site for Education! Have a look and see if your education or training activities might benefit from such funding or at least the exposure to this community online.

Without reading this study in detail, it's unclear whether the key objective is related to:

 

1. the findings on intermittent reinforcement patterns (para 2, above) or

2. the location of a centre in the brain that may be related to 'motivation' in sufferers of Parkinsons Disease.

 

Either way, the value of this study in better understanding motivation in the workplace is an 'interesting curiosity' at best ... but a curiosity, nonetheless (para 3, above).
